Herkimer College Students Participate in United Way Emerging Leaders Hygiene Supply Drive

November 09, 2018

Herkimer County Community College's Upsilon Epsilon Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa participated in the United Way’s Emerging Leader’s hygiene supply drive. United Way’s Emerging Leaders United is a group of community member volunteers, 40 year of age and under, working to further the mission of United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area. The Volunteer Taskforce committee coordinated a hygiene supply drive this fall to give needed items such as soap, shampoo, feminine products, toothbrushes, etc. to those in need within our community. The drive ran from October 11th to November 8th. Items collected will benefit local pantries and shelters including the Mohawk Valley YWCA. Members of Upsilon Epsilon chapter coordinated several drop off areas on campus. Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for two-year college students.
